It's probably not that much in whole scheme of things but, I was told the armed services Just bought a billion and a half rounds and are gonna buy more.

From what I hear it's the combination of panic buying, military buying a huge ammount of ammo, and the fact that the ammo companies weren't prepared. I've still got some .22lr,.223,.380, 9mm, 30-06, 12 gauge, 20 gauge,.410, and 7.62x54R left, but not much. One guy I know went into Academy Sports when this started and bought 2 pallets worth of 5.56!! Needless to say it's pretty bad here(NE Louisiana).

If you buy on-line there is almost no ammo you can't find if you know where to look.
How about .30-06 at $.50 a round. Try here.

Or some match grade .223 for way less than $1 a round.

Not to mention some 9mm Lugar

The only reason I say almost no ammo I can't find is I can't find any .22lr at anywhere near a reasonable price.

It's official, RI and MA have a shortage too. .45 and .40 are running low, and 9mm is nowhere to be found. You can get reloaded lead, but I've been told its no good for my Glock, any suggestions?

get a lone wolf glock barrel. they fix the problem with the defective glock factory barrels. you get a fully supported chamber and regular land and groove rifling that lets you shoot lead without worry.

My friend called me earlier from a gun show he's working at in the South Point Casino on LV Blvd. He said earlier today there was a line that estimated a 5hr wait to buy ammo. He called me a couple of hours ago and said the wait was reduced down to an estimated 3 hrs. It's sick and getting sicker.
